    I have obtained a set of these rims. Three are in good condition but one needs repainting. The colour is a very bright silver, almost like a natural metal finish. I've painted another set of rims in the past with Holden Quicksilver and this silver is much brighter, with a stronger metallic fleck to it.

    I'm wondering if the colour for wheels called Titanium would be a good match. Can anybody advise if this is the case, or suggest a good match?

    i had my gold rims redone in the factory paint code and they looked a bit different to the 15 year old paint that was on them. much brighter, but still very nice. I think the factory colours are the way to go.

    tldr i just use the factory colour.

    Hey figjam.. I read that thread but the result you got is nothing like the colour I'm after. The finish is so close to natural metal that I actually thought the raised centre rib of each spoke was metal clear coated. I think this sort of silver is used on Euro Fords like the sports model Focus. It's precisely the reason I want to duplicate the factory finish if I can. I know there is a Titanium wheel paint, perhaps that's what I'm after.

    Perhaps try a paint supplier and see if they can colour match them....Never know your luck....Might get the right colour
